The Turkish Ambassador stated that his country is making efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: “Enormous injustice happened against our more than a million refugees and IDPs brothers. Despite the decisions made by the United Nations and international bodies, the occupation of 20% of Azerbaijan's lands is still a shame for the world, and our President has voiced this in the UN.”
